All Things Web® MD Presents at Launch of Ability Specialist Interest Group for Trade Body BASDA
MD of All Things Web®, Helen Moloney, was delighted to present at the launch of BASDA’s (Business Application Software Developers Association) new Ability Specialist Interest Group.
With the deadline for public bodies to ensure they are complaint with accessibility legislation (PSBAR 2018) coming into force this September, it’s crucial that those organisations affected are fully aware and have implemented the necessary changes to their website and mobile apps.
The Importance of Inclusive Design
The launch saw industry expert Robin Christopherson, MBE – Head of Digital Inclusion at AbilityNet, illustrating the challenges some users have with current website functionality such as CAPTCHA codes and viewing websites on mobile phones.
Helen Moloney went on to outline what inclusive design looks like when building a website and how a website audit can assist organisations to understand the areas they may not be compliant in and what needs to be undertaken to achieve this.
Making our organisations, our interactions as well as our digital touchpoints such as websites, digital documents and apps accessible requires a change in culture. “In my role as Chair of the Marketing Specialist Interest Group,” says Helen, “I’m keen to see inclusive design and website accessibility being embraced by all businesses so that everyone can have the highest customer experience possible.”
